Need Performance Advice

Hello everyone,

I just bought a 2001 7.3, and I'm looking to give it a little kick in the pants. I'm new to diesels, so bare with me.

From the little bit of research that I've done, this is the list that I've compiled to fit my budget.

1. Fuel Rail Crossover
2. Bosch 17 HPOP
3. 4" Turbo Back Exhaust
4. S&b CAI
5. Stage 1.5 180cc Full Force Injectors
6. PHP Hydra Chip
7. Garret GTP38 Compressor Wheel

What am I missing? Is there anything on that list that I don't need, or should replace with something else? Also, any opinions on DPI, or boost foolers?

I'll be dealing with the trans, and turbo replacement in a year or so.

What you have is fine...

2.Hpop - dieselsite or cncfab. Both are awesome!

7.gtp38r (with an r). If you get upgrade your turbo accordingly, don’t upgrade injectors.

I highly recommend at least upgrading your jw valve body if transmission wi be done later.

Re: Need Performance Advice

Don’t worry about # while you really should be worrying about a new transmission with 180 injectors. If that’s all you care for right now, you need to go back to the drawing board or do more reading and be well rounded 7.3 wise.

Google 7.3 180/30 hp and the worlds your oyster.

Re: Need Performance Advice

I'm buying a built trans in November; that's why I said I would be dealing with it later.

Re: Need Performance Advice

With the single shots you probably dont need the HPOP. Is the current one weak? With proper tuning you dont need
boost foolers.

How many miles on the current motor?

'00 F350 Supercrewzer Lariet, PSD, Auto, 3.73, CC, 4x4, SWB, SRW, 160/30 w/Gearhead Tunes, 38r, S&B CAI, 4-inch turbo back exhaust, Adrenaline HPOP, BTS Trans, in-tank/pre-pump mod, heater/AC mod, Excursion sound panels, Harvest Gold and Black / Packages: Trailer Tow, Camper, Off-Road.

Negative. Boost fooler is needed. Programming can’t override the map sensor. Anything over 22-23psi and the map sensor will throw a cell and defuel IIRC.
